‘Because we need things, we are “needy”‘

this letter was also sent in October.

Hi,

Thanks so much for the books and letter. I’ve gotten your letter I didn’t write back b/c I just don’t know what to say. I hate it here. I’ve been here 18 months, seen a lot of stuff that human beings shouldn’t have to deal with: being told to piss in the shower because they don’t want to mash a button. The way we are talked to–here’s the thing: everybody in this jail is going through something, some more tragic than others and they don’t need this jail b.s. in their lives. Continue reading

INHUMANE

this letter was sent in October.

Hey —

Hope you’re doing well. Well I just wanted to write back to let ya know how things are going around here…I asked for toilet paper one day and the c.o. told me NO because she didn’t like me and because I was too white! Really. I put a grievance in on her and nothing was ever done. I still have an open grievance from May about an officer that told me to piss in the shower because she wouldn’t pop my door unless I was gonna stay behind that door. Sick, right? And the other day I saw an officer and a young girl, a minor, age 16, get into it. Continue reading

Jail Talk

  1. 1st week of October, 23:55 in 3D: A detainee was hollering and kicking the door at minutes before midnight. About 10-12 officers rushed the detainee, and he was put in the chair.

2. Fri, 21st of Oct, about 15:00: Maintenance came into 3D and repaired some cell locks. There’s still some that are not working!! I hope they finish the rest of them. I still not notice 5 more cell doors not working! If power goes out–which it does–and there was a fire, or some other emergency, people in these cells would have no way out.

3. Oct 21 was officer Johnson’s last day over the library. She’s now working down in medical with the other sorry asses! Most everyone knows this b-tch. She really is. She doesn’t like men at all, and if you like to read on your 12 hours a day lock down, to get a book you used to have to go through her. No more!

4. on Oct 26, an employee with Aramark named Bull–not just any employee, the one who delivered canteen items–got fired for coming to work on drugs. The saying is the vice president came here and fired him! Interesting that this guy who did what the fuck he wanted for so long all of a sudden gets fired when the bid on the commissary contract is coming.

More Jail Talk…

  1. On Oct. 10, an inmate goes to superior court, where his name is called out and the lawyer’s name as well. The lawyer, Lisa Williams, confronts her client and asks who was he. And what was his charge? Note, the client has had Lisa Williams his entire jail stay, 8 months.

2. Around the 1st of Oct, again Lisa Williams was in court, and while there she went and talked to the judge, then announced to her client that she was no longer going to represent him, because of conflict of interest. What led up to this day was an ongoing conflict between Ms. Williams and the client over an assault charge he was wanting to plead guilty to as quickly as she could get him in front of a judge. Which she continued to avoid for more than two months.

‘WAR: It’s time to fight back’

Whatz up.

I’m still fighting. I know you haven’t heard from me in a while. I been doing a lot of reading and thinking. Like the question what goal are we trying to get to? How do we plan on getting there?

What the system doing to us is the same thing they been doing for years! They just change the shell. Like slavery instead of working the fields, they send us to jail and prison. Instead of house niggers, they have c.o.’s or d.o.’s. Also D.A.’s.  Continue reading

‘Police stopped me from praying downtown’

10-14-16

How are you doing? I am doing fine now. I am still in this jail. I don’t know when I am to go to court for my case. I’ve been in here for five months now and I haven’t seen a judge or my lawyer but one time.

Look, my first amendment rights was violated because I’m a Muslim who was praying in Arabic and the Durham police stopped me from praying downtown. And yes, I do have a witness, but the police don’t take his statement.

So, can y’all help me out.

‘I HATE DCDF and everything it stands for’

10/13/16

What’s up?

I’m ok. I could be better but I’m hanging in there. Thanks for writing back…You’re right about the mail, my wife sent me mail on the 6th of October and I received it on the 11th, how crazy is that? I’m also very ecstatic about the change in the food, it’s way more appetizing than Aramark. But anyway, they do all they can to try to make us seem irrelevant, but they can’t stop the mail services. So, with that being said I would like to see them try to stop us from writing you guys. Continue reading
